What do you guys think is the greatest shred song? And I say quintessential cuz I mean greatest in which song would be most widely accepted (like in a Guitar World list and such) as being the greatest shred song? Id prob. say an Yngwie one, like Black Star and Far Beyond THe Sun.

Good call.

My vote goes to 'Concerto' by Cacophony (Becker/Friedman), followed Jason Becker's 'Altitudes' and Yngwie Malmsteen's 'Black Star'.
I really think it would have to be a song by an artist that most people have heard of.... An artist who when the name gets mentioned people think "Shred", rather then "Whos that?"..... For this reason id have to say Van Halens Eruption, Malmsteens Far Beyond The Sun, Satch's Surfing with the Alien and Vai's For the Love of God" would be my choice....
Frank Zappa's not dead. He just smells funny.
